A teenage boy has died following an accident in Clay County.

The accident happened on Nebo School Road on Tuesday around 5:30 p.m.

Troopers said Robert Lee Bowman, 15, of Braxton County, and another boy were riding their dirt bikes down the road.

Investigators said Bowman tried to brake as he approached Route 16, but the bike did not have working brakes.

A woman driving a car down Route 16 hit Bowman.  Troopers said Bowman's friend called 911, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bowman was wearing a helmet but it was not secured properly, troopers said.

No charges will be filed in the accident, according to investigators.
